Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups - All Positions

Offense reigns supreme in the NFL these days. In Week 9, we saw scores of 45-35, 42-28, 37-21, and 38-14.

Not every vulture or opportunistic backup is worth owning in fantasy leagues but... Read More

Week 10 Wide Receivers - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

Not much time is left in the fantasy football season, so decisions are critical right now. With the waiver wire so thin, a week of injuries can leave you scrambling last minute.

Week 10 Kicker Streamers and Starts - 2018 Fantasy Tiers, Rankings

As the season rolls on, the kicker position is always a tough one to gauge. There are so few players locked in as starters that you sometimes have to hope you get lucky.

Week 10 Tight Ends - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

The fantasy football season is more than halfway over! Minnesota’s Kyle Rudolph is the only tight end with any fantasy relevance on bye this week, and even he is not as big of a loss as he would have been in past seasons due to him not finding the end zone as often as in... Read More

Week 10 Quarterback - Waiver Wire Adds and Pickups

Outside of Nick Mullens big Thursday Night performance, it was a rather quiet week for waiver wire quarterbacks. Some of the studs like Drew Brees and Matt Ryan had huge games, but there weren't many emergent names or standout performances in the middle tiers other than Mullens. Four teams are on bye this week, with... Read More

Waiver Wire Express - Week 10 Lightning Round

Week 9 felt a bit "chalkier" than other recent NFL slates, with many big names going off and very few lower-owned players coming on to vulture touchdowns from the big guns. There also weren't any notable injuries (as of Sunday evening), so the waiver wire will consist more of underappreciated assets rather than replacements. We here... Read More

Quarterbacks to Own for the Playoff Stretch

Before the season started, I gave readers a list of quarterbacks who could be drafted based on their fantasy playoff matchups.

Fantasy Winners and Losers - NFL Trade Deadline

Using the #AllBenchRB Strategy

I apologize to my millions of fans for my absence these past few weeks. I was busy completing an Ironman whilst studying for the Mensa exam.

Week 9 Tight Ends - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

The bye weeks are getting harder and harder on fantasy football owners. After back-to-back weeks where four teams were off, a half-dozen teams do not take the field for Week 9.

Week 9 Quarterback Waiver Wire Adds and Pickups

Oh Buccaneers, you give us no respite from the quarterback shenanigans. When Tampa Bay's quarterbacks are good, they're really good. When they're bad, they're really bad.

Week 9 Kicker Streamers and Starts - 2018 Fantasy Tiers, Rankings

Week 8 featured several high-scoring matchups, but there were far more touchdowns scored than field goals. As teams get better, defenses should start holding teams to kicking more field goals, which is good for kickers in fantasy. When looking at the matchups for this week, there are quite a few games that figure to be... Read More
